Julia Porzelt - The handicapped rider looks back on a successful 2019

We reported on the 24-year old Julia Porzelt from Prien a. Chiemesee in 2019 and provided an insight into Julia’s life and her passion for sports. Julia Porzelt is a successful athlete in disabled riding. Together with its two horses, the pony mare Lettenhof’s lovely Daintiness and her gelding Bruno, she can look back on a successful 2019.

Participation in the German and Bavarian championships

Julia Porzelt’s first tournament in 2019, and thus the international tournament premiere with her gelding Bruno, was the Mannheim Market Show. Julia had already been training with Bruno since the summer of 2018 and prepared the big horse with her trainer in Rosenheim to successfully participate in competitions and shows. The intensive training paid off for both of them. They were able to steadily improve their performance on every show day and on the last day even took fifth place in freestyle to music.

This was followed by both of them participating in the German championships in Munich Riem. Here they were both able to secure two fifth place finishes and one fourth place finish in a hard fought show.

Julia then competed at the season's highlight, the Bavarian championship, with her mare Dainty, which was the first tournament they competed in together after the long break due to injury. The two of them confidently took first place twice and thus became Bavarian champions over several degrees for the fourth time

We are very excited Julia's success and congratulate her on her great successes!

Julia also had a great personal success. She finally won the trial for a health insurance subsidy for sports prostheses. The prostheses give her greater possibilities to be active in sports. Now, in addition to riding training, she can finally go jogging in order to be ideally prepared for the upcoming season, which she has been doing enthusiastically since the end of the year.  Have a look for yourself!

Support in 2020 also from the company Memmert

The company Memmert will also be supporting Julia Porzelt in 2020 and therefore her wish for the parasport to be more well-known in media. Since equestrian sport and in particular the upkeep of two horses are very expensive, Julia is grateful for any help. We are excited about Julia’s motivation and that she is continuing to pursue her dream and is not discouraged by minor setbacks or injuries.

Thank you, dear Julia, for letting us share in your development. We are looking forward to a great sports year!
